With so much new stuff happening now, we encourge volunteers to come into our Victoria Warehouse and assist us to prepare and pack the soap Hygiene Kits.

 

Currently we are working on Tuesday and Thursdays during the daytime from 10:00 AM until about 1 or 2 PM. You can come by anytime then and help out, Keurig Coffee is always on.

 

We are also starting up our evening work times on Wednesday nights starting at 6:00 PM and going until 8:30 or 9:00 PM. Once again it's to prepare and package our hygiene kits that are shipped all over the world to alleviate disease and dirt in refugee camps.

 

You can call us at 250 595 5974 for more info or just email me (John Joynt) at John@disasteraid.ca and I will either call you back or email you with any further info you require. I look forward to meeting new volunteers and having many helping hands to process the over 2000 pounds of soaps that we are currently getting from Vancouver Islands finest hotels.

 

If you are a Rotarian that is visiting Victoria you should come by our warehouse and take a tour or work a shift with us. Quite the experience to see this old useless soap get a new life and make a difference in someone's life.  

Latest News from Disaster Aid Canada

Could you imagine what it would be like to lose everything, watch your children suffer through lack of food and water and not be able to give your family the security of basic shelter? These are the questions we ask every day. How can we assist these people around the world to have security as a family unit and a glimmer of hope for their future?

We are constantly moved by the generosity and commitment of fellow Rotarians, their friends and associates here and around the world who support Disaster Aid Canada's humanitarian aid delivery - delivered by Rotarians to those most in need with accountability and dignity.

Disaster Aid Canada, together with our international Rotary partners continues to assist refugees in the Horn of Africa, especially the most at risk at a newly created camp.

At the time of writing, another two containers of Family Survival boxes are being delivered to house the frail and most at risk. The magnitude and complexity of this disaster is enormous with shelter, water, sanitation and food being the priorities.

With the support of fellow Rotarians, we will continue to assist and turn despair into hope.

We need your continued support ...

In our first twelve months of serving those most in need, deploying to Pakistan, the Sudan, Haiti and the Horn of Africa, and with a commitment to assist Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Belkys Lopez in the Sudan again, we need your help in replenishing our stocks. For a family that has lost everything, $750 buys the security of a home ... and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.

Quite simply, the more Family Survival boxes we have in stock, the more families we assist in the Rotary spirit.

And please remember, Disaster Aid Canada really is the essence of Rotary service. As a project of the Rotary Club of Royal Oak (D5020) its members (and their families and friends) continue to provide a selfless, ongoing commitment - in so many ways - to this real 'Rotary Club' humanitarian project.

We welcome your contact to discuss how as Rotarians, we can help put smiles back onto so many faces through the delivery of our 'boxes of hope'.
